Reconciling internalization theory and the eclectic paradigm

By Alan M. Rugman

Abstract

The eclectic paradigm of Dunning (1980) (with its OLI and\ud four motives for FDI framework) can be reconciled with the firm\ud and country matrix of Rugman (1981). However, the fit is not perfect.\ud The main reason for misalignment is that Dunning is focused upon outward\ud FDI into host economies, whereas Rugman’s matrix is for firm-level strategy\ud covering MNE activity in both home and host countries
